ASOS launches sustainable fashion training.

Published by Ocean Generation \ August 5, 2018 10:01 am

ASOS has set the wheels in motion to establish itself as a sustainable power house, after the fashion industry, especially companies labeled “fast fashion” have been dragged through the press for their lack of respect for the earth, our shared resources and waste habits that have shocked readers around the world.

Last week ASOS an online fast fashion company dressing people around the world day in day out, promised to ban cashmere, silk, down and feathers across its entire platform by the end of January 2019, this respectful move comes after a wave of criticism towards fast fashion mega brands, and ASOS it determined to do all it can to be responsible and offer a conscious free shopping experience for its many consumers.

On top of such exciting news for the brand they have also released that they are building a new sustainable learning infrastructure for new and existing designers under the ASOS umbrella, along with a new partnership with London college of fashion. The course will explore end-to-end design techniques that consider the whole life cycle of a product, rather than simply creating new ones.

We are exited to see other fashion companies commit to such simple and environmentally friendly new methods as we move forward.
